Are you someone who enjoys going for walks? Do you appreciate breath-taking vistas? And what about stunning rock formations that leave you marveling at nature’s beauty? OK, stay with us; you’re going to like this. Located on Michigan’s Mackinac Island, the crown jewel of the Great Lakes, is a trail that leads you through a quaint downtown, past a historic military fort from the 1700s, along the coast, and to the magnificent Arch Rock. The Arch is composed of natural limestone and was organically sculpted by a prehistoric proglacial lake. Yes, you read that correctly – a prehistoric lake. But, let’s bring it back to the present and talk about this highly recommended trail that’s home to the most awe-inspiring rock formations in Michigan.

It’s no surprise Arch Rock is what attracts the majority of the island’s visitors – the majestic formation stands over 100 feet above the water and is more than 50 feet wide. The Arch has been admired by Native Americans, by Euro-Americans during the 1800s, and smartphone-wielding folks, like you!

Have you visited Arch Rock before? Do you remember what you thought when you first saw these epic rock formations in Michigan?
